No heat,need to replace thermostat, do not know where it is located


you do not need to replace the thermostat because you are not getting heat. what you need to do is to ensure the heater coolant control is operating to allow hot water through to the heater core.. If the thermostat was faulty you would be overheating or the temp gauge would not be getting of the cold mark.

My 2005 nissan altima has no heat


If before you change the thermostat,if the car has always had that thermostat in it,and the heater heated before and the engine is not overheating,the thermostat is most likely fine.But that is the cheapest way to start,Lissa is on the right track there.The heating element may need replaced..

How can I tell if the thermostat in my 2004 suzuki forenza needs to be replaced?


hi natalie. the thermostat opens and closes to send heat to the interior of the vehicle. that said, if your car was cold over the winter even when you turned the heat on then chances are that the thermostat was stuck. if the heat worked as it should, chances are the thermostat is fine. Replacement is quick, the part is inexpensive so if you do have a problem down the road it will be a small repair.

REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.IF CAR OVER HEATING WHILE IN MOTION.MORE LIKELY ITS THE THERMOSTAT,LOW COOLANT IN RADIATOR OR COOLANT SYSTEM,BAD WATER PUMP,WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE IS LEAKING, WATER PUMP NEEDS REPLACING.CHECK ENGINE OIL,IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE YOU HAVE LEAKING HEAD GASKET.IF CAR IN PARK AND OVER HEATS WHILE IN A LONG TRAFFIC LINE OR.BANK DRIVE THROUGH COOLANT FAN NOT TURNING ON, BECAUSE THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR FAULTY.CODE SCAN CAR FOR FAULTY COOLANT FAN RELAY OR FAULTY PCM. CHECK COOLANT FAN FUSE, AND HOT WIRE THE COOLANT FAN TO MAKE SURE ITS WORKING.IF COOLANT FAN DONT WORK WHEN HOT WIRED. COOLANT FAN NEEDS REPLACING. REPLACE BOTH RADIATOR HOSES, REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.BUY NEW COOLANT ADD 50/50 WATER AND COOLANT.IF ENGINE OIL HAS ANTIFREEZE IN IT.REPLACE ENGINE OIL AND OIL FILTER TO KEEP FROM LOCKING UP THE ENGINE.GET CAR FIX.DONT KEEP DRIVING IF IT KEEP OVER HEATING,ENGINE DAMAGE WILL OCCUR.I HOPE INFORMATION I GAVE YOU WILL FIX PROBLEM.PROBLEM COULD BE LEAKING RADIATOR HOSES BUT CHANGE THERMOSTAT THATS FIRST THING I WOULD CHANGE BECAUSE IF IT CLOSED, ENGINE WILL OVER HEAT AND CRACK CYLINDER HEAD OR CRACK PISTON, COOLANT NEED TO CIRCULATE THROUGH THE ENGINE TO TAKE AWAY THE HEAT FROM ENGINE.

Replaced thermostat,heater core and still no heat wonder if I installed thermostat in wrong,gauge says it heats up but test drive and temp gauge goes to cold still have no heat,need help on this. How does...


the dommed part of the T-stat goes up, it won't go in backwards as memory serves me, what u almost certainly have going on here is the Air temperature control electric bend door actuator s defective, and the door is stuck in the cold air position in the heating/ac duct, to replace this the dash must be removed from the car..

Heater blowing cold air antifreez full 1999 lincoln navigator


is there a thermostat for the heater loop the same as for the radiator loop on your car cooling system.

1 some cars have thermostats to keep the water just round the engine when the engine is cold and then they open as the engine gets warm to get the water cooled it seems that the water is not coming to the heating circuit so there maybe a thermostat valve that is stuck in the closed position and needs replacement
2 alterativly the heat control lever mechanism is stuck in the cold position and needs to be freed up or the control valve replaced.
3if the system is electrically controlled with no manual levers for heat control then a fuse may have blown or some other electical problem in the heat control mechanism.
